Re: Class of 2021: 2L 2 Furious

I'm not registered for it yet, I was planning on taking BA with De Fontenay and assumed the two BA sections would fill evenly but De Fontenay is already full. I'm assuming Bankruptcy will have slots round two because like you said it has 100 slots and only 2 registered. I did Ethics, FedCourts, Alt...

Re: Class of 2021: 2L 2 Furious

Also I missed the boat on the one BA section that worked with my schedule, so taking Principles of Commercial and Bankruptcy Law instead which looks pretty interesting and relevant for corporate practice, but has class on Thursday evenings... You're one of the two people currently registered for th...

Re: Class of 2021: 2L 2 Furious

Why in the world would you be required to take Transnational and Admin before ConLaw? Prof Responsibility I can kind of understand, but the other two we aren't even required to take.

Re: Class of 2021: 2L 2 Furious

Thought about doing more credits but between being on the school's busiest secondary journal and being on the board for a group I didn't want to overextend myself.

My career counselor said that bidlists were due this week or the day after grades come out—implying there’s a possibility they will not come out this week.
What I've heard is Friday at the earliest, with early next week probably being more likely.

Re: transfer to Harvard from Columbia or reapply next cycle?

Even if you got into Harvard, Columbia for free would be the easy option unless you're already insanely wealthy. Just stay there, graduate from a T6 (for free) and probably end up in DC anyways.

Same but with my writing sample. Maybe if I missed it the first 5 times I read it the employer did too?

Re: Class of 2021: we're basically 1.5Ls now

Well guess I'm still alive.

Am I the only one that didn't study a minute in the library over finals? It got seriously gross in there, mostly worked in open conference rooms/classrooms with a couple days in the apartment here and there. Plus all the nervous energy was just too much.

Thank you guys so much for doing this! It's incredibly helpful. Do you interact much with students in the other grad schools?

So I’m assuming my grad school GPA wouldn’t factor in at all the way y’all are making it sound?
Grad school GPA doesn't really matter much unless its uncharacteristically low for your program, but having the degree itself does help as a soft factor.

Re: GTown & GW Part Time

2016 medians probably aren't all that accurate anymore, the admissions process has gotten much more competitive across the board since then.
